    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    The roasted red peppers in this dish really add a special "something" to the tomato sauce. Growing up, we had pasta with tomato sauce at LEAST once a week. This recipe really adds another depth of flavor to a very familiar dish

      This was a very rich, tasty and delightful sauce. I have never made a tomato sauce without some type of meat and it was a delightful change of pace. The roasted red peppers added a very rich flavor to the sauce. Even my pasta hating son loved it. I followed the directions exactly except I could not find pecorino romano cheese, so used regular romano cheese. Served this with cesar salad and french bread to make a wonderful meal for my son and I. Thanks KB for a great recipe.

      Becky, WOW this is some good sauce! It was extremely easy to make, and is so rich and flavorful. The only changes I made were to use 1/2 cup red wine, 1/2 cup water as I didn't have any white wine or vegetable broth. Also did not have the flat leaf parsley so used dried regular parsley. I almost overdid the red pepper flakes but I like red sauce with a bite! I've just finished a bowl of pasta and this sauce for lunch so thanks for a wonderful meal!
